 All Development applications are heard by both the Planning and Zoning (P&Z) Commission and City Council except for most final plats which go directly before City Council. 

Application submittal deadlines are at 3:00 pm on the date listed. 

Staff comments after submittal will be provided via written response. Meetings related to DRC review will be scheduled at the discretion of Murphy staff or at the applicant's request. Meetings (when held) are held at Murphy City Hall, 206 N Murphy Road, Murphy, Texas 75094.

All DRC comments must be addressed in a prompt manner in order for the application to remain on track. A written response, referencing numbered staff comments, and original mark-ups must accompany the plan resubmittal. Submission of zoning related applications by a particular submittal date does not guarantee automatic scheduling for a specific P&Z Commission meeting date.
